WTN: Three Cabs from Adelaida

Postby Randy Buckner » Thu Jun 15, 2006 11:09 am

2002 Adelaida, Cabernet Sauvignon, Reserve, Viking Estate, Paso Robles, California, $75, 308 cases. This deeply-hued wine gives off aromas of blackberries, cassis, and cedar. Full and elegant on the entry, you’ll find silky but firm tannins, lush fruit, and delightful balance; 90/89.

2002 Adelaida, Cabernet Sauvignon, Reserve, Viking/HMR Estate, Paso Robles, California, $45, 419 cases. Blackberries, cherry liqueur, cedar, and vanilla carry from the nose to the mouth, with just a touch of tomato leaf. Tannins are well managed; 86/85.

2002 Adelaida, Cabernet Sauvignon, San Luis Obispo County, California, $28, 1,616 cases. This deep ruby wine gives off aromas and flavors of black cherries, cigar box, cedar and vanilla. Medium to full on the palate, with moderate tannins; 85/85.
